Songs with Wine in their Lyrics

Music is just like wine. Each of us has very different tastes in what we like and dislike. The music that is “best” for one person can easily be “worst” for another people. So it’s always fun to see when wine is mentioned in song.

Here are some of the wine songs or song with wine lyrics.
